Today we visited a potter's workshop in Tajimi, The Kokeigama kiln. It sits on the top of a hill so steep I thought our old car wouldn't make it all the way up. Well up there we found a pretty collection of houses in classic Japanese style, and a somewhat more modern looking building that house the workshop itself, where up to fifty people turn their wheels during a workshop.
They are all visitors curious about pottery making, a centuries old tradition in the area, which is home to the famous Minoyaki stile. It was a pleasant day, and the master (you'll see him if you swing the picture around) explained to me very patiently about how people come from afar to try their hand on pottery making. In the video you'll get to meet the master himself in virtual reality, and hear him explain the intricacies of minoyaki pottey making.
